Item description for What You Need to Know about "The Passion of the Christ" by Etc Ian Brown...
After months of promotion and discussion, Mel Gibson's movie "THe Passtion of the Christ" has finally been released in cinemas all over the world. Never before has a film generated so much debate prior to its release. The Passion promise to provoke further reaction as many people view it. This book contains What You Need to Know About: The Making of the Movie--at first, it sounded like it might just be a quirky art film; a film about Jesus' passion using only the dead languages of Aramaic and Latin without subtitles. But what started out as news of the weird has turned into a powerful and popular film that has already become a major milestone in cinematic history. The Message of the Movie--although liberals have lambasted The Passion and allege that its screening will result in anti-Jewish sentiment, a surprisingly wide assortment of pastors and priests have cheered it. In fact, they have been stockpiling outreach materials to capitalize on its message. The Meaning of the Movie--many have hailed it as "the greatest evangelistic tool in 2000 years." They predict that it will revolutionize religious life in America and impact greatly on many other parts of the world. What does the crucified Christ mean to you? Do you know HIm? Have you ever considered that He died for you? These--and many other--issues are examined in this book. For millions, the film is a must-see; this little book is a must-read.

Horrible horrible and horrible Aug 4, 2008
I returned this extremely offensive book back to the publisher because I did not wish to have it in my home one more minute. I have never been so disgusted.
Ian Brown is a disgrace, as well as a dangerous and clearly vehement anti-Catholic. I am a baptized Roman Catholic, and frankly, he scares me. He reminds me of 1930s Germany.
Apparently, according to Mr. Brown, Mel Gibson was not allowed to express his obviously beloved and deeply rooted Catholic ideas and beliefs in his own film. I thank God every day he did just that.
I thought of refuting all the mistakes in this book, but then decided, what's the point. Mr. Brown was born ignorant. He will die ignorant. Thank goodness I only paid a couple dollars for this trash. That's all it's worth. Good riddance to truly bad rubbish.
